In the movies, if somebody is supposed to be a cookie-cutter boring homebody, they usually have them living in Connecticut. The truth is that Connecticut is a vibrant and interesting place to live, and at times, the movies give this great state a bum scoop! Hartford, the capital, is home to pro sports teams, a convention center, several excellent universities, and more. Among the interesting sights is the Mark Twain house, where the famous author lived out his days. Other interesting sights around the state include Mystic Seaport, a historical preservation/recreation of Connecticut's seafaring past.

For a great many years, there were no truly outstanding restaurants between Hartford and Springfield that offered a dining experience on the level of what you would find in a city such as Boston, NYC, Chicago, or San Francisco.

Suffield, Connecticut, is a beautiful rural town on the west bank of the Connecticut River, approximately 20 minutes north of Hartford, CT, and ten minutes south of Springfield, Massachusetts. Originally founded in 1670 as "Southfield", MA, the town was annexed to Connecticut in 1749 and has a current population of just over 14,000.

The town remains predominantly agricultural, with the landscape spotted with tobacco and dairy farms. Of particular note is the 4.3-mile stretch of Main Stre...Read More
